Kano To Employ Teachers From Britain To Teach English Language

Nov 8, 2011 – Kano To Employ Teachers From Britain To Teach English Language

Governor Rabiu Kwankwaso of Kano State has urged the management of the Local Education Partnerships, a British Council funded education project, to employ teachers from Britain to teach English language in Kano schools.

Kwankwaso also asked the LEP management to sponsor students from the state to the United Kingdom to attend courses in English language, adding that when such students returned from the British institutions, they would be expected to serve in the state public schools.

He disclosed this while receiving a team from Somerset Local Education Authority, UK, which was on a working visit to the state. The governor stressed that the move was important as most students in the state
were having difficulties in Mathematics and English language.

He said the mass failure in the subjects made his administration to employ British teachers to teach the subjects at the new Governor’s College, Kofar Nasarawa, which would start admission during the next academic session.

The governor noted that the partnership was a welcome development. He, however, advised that such projects should not be limited to urban schools alone but should also cover rural areas.

The Project Manager, Local Education Partnerships, Dr. A.A. Lawan, revealed that under the scheme, schools in the UK were connected to their counterparts in Nigeria.

The team leader, Lynn Curtler, said LEP is in partnership with 11 schools in the state under Nassarawa Local Education Authority.

      its possible they respond bcos one thing i know abou the british is that they love anything that deals with educating. But there is no sense in have unemployed graduates littered everywere in the country leaving those ones apart and going to britan to employ those ones can never be as better as those one here. I dont know what is wrong with nigeria, why they dont think wright before doing things. We have once try such in our sport(football) we failed. Now they want to repeat such in education again. Only god knows that day we will wake from our slumber.

    there are a lot of people in nigeria that can teach and speak better english , because some of the british people do not even know how to speak good queen english anymore, beside where do you want to keep them from gboko harani who said they do not want western education , i hope the British themselves do not dare make a mistake of going there . this governor is brainless because you are going to pay ten times of the money , you are to pay people in nigeria.
